Why Elior

We’re dedicated to excellence in customer service - the whole customer experience. The food, the people who serve it, the resources behind the scenes that make us a trusted, innovative partner.

Why choose us? 

Our service comes straight from the heart. The pleasure and well-being we bring to customers is the fundamental motivating force in our business. But we underpin our passion for food and service with investment in deep resources to drive best practice, compliance with the highest standards and continual improvement. We aim to be the company people can rely on most for great food, but also for food that is safe and healthy, sustainably produced and ethically sourced.

And vitally we believe that exceptional care for customers happens because our employees are cared for themselves. We are a company where people learn and develop outstanding skills -- for life.

This is what Elior is all about: the whole experience.

Since Elior was formed in 1991 our group has become a major player in the contract catering and related services sector, with operations in 15 countries and over 120,000 employees. There are more than 10,000 Elior people in the UK on more than 650 client sites.

We work for world-leading commercial, professional and financial service companies, renowned and emerging industrial companies, the armed services, education, the care sector, world-famous sports stadia and wonderful heritage and entertainment venues.




Elior has won and has been shortlisted for numerous awards for excellence in food and service and for its business practices from the catering industry and from the wider business community.

The awards recognise the achievements of our colleagues across a range of market sectors and widely different types of client sites. They span many areas of our business, from prestigious awards for all round performance in the industry, such as Caterer of the Year 2015, to awards for the craft skills of our chefs and other colleagues in menu development and innovation in service.

Beyond our industry, we are proud to have been benchmarked against the highest achieving companies in all sectors of business, with awards celebrating our commitment to being among the very best employers. For example, we've received The Sunday Times Best Big Companies to Work For award, as well as awards for learning and development, health and safety and our record in managing our impact on the environment.
